TREY: Okay, so at this point, just to recap, here’s what’s happened: Colonel Forbin has come down. He’s come into this corridor, and he meets up with this guy named Rutherford The Brave, who was this knight from the Gamehendge here. Some of the... The city of Gamehendge here is called Prussia, after the famous Prussia and Wilson is the Evil King.
Colonel Forbin comes down and meets Rutherford The Brave, they walk down the aisle, and Rutherford starts to tell him all about the history of Gamehendge, The Helping Friendly Book, Wilson. They go off and they stand next to this lagoon for awhile, and they are up next to this raging river. Rutherford, he’s not too bright, he falls into the river with his suit of armour, with his suit of armour on, sinks to the bottom.
So, Colonel Forbin, standing by the side of the river, doesn’t know what he’s gonna do. Rutherford is sinking to the bottom of this raging river when suddenly he looks across the river and he sees this huge sort of, hairy monster and this other four legged beast with a beautiful woman on it, comes riding up towards him. And, this is Tela.
So Tela comes riding up towards him on this thing called a multi-beast, which is a big, hairy, four legged creature, with long, sort of curly hair that’s got these sort of brown splotches and white splotches all over it. She comes riding up, and her sidekick of sorts is this guy named The Unit Monster. Now, the Unit Monster is this huge, strong beast. He dives into the water, swims to the place where Rutherford the Brave has sank, and he lifts Rutherford up, saves him, brings hims over to the shore and puts him down.
Now, Rutherford is recovering, and Colonel Forbin in the meantime is not paying any attention to this at all because this woman, Tela, has ridden up on this multi-beast. He’s looking up at Tela, and he’s falling in love. He’s never seen such a beautiful woman before in his life. He looks up at her, and he’s kind of got these eyes looking up, and he starts to sort of imagine this little song going through the inside of his head.
[Phish plays “Tela” followed by the slow return of the woodblock tick-tock and some soft playing from Page as background for the next narration segment.]
